Erick Burnham | 3 comments I believe this was a post apocalyptic book. Each man would have a name and a weapon. If they encountered someone else with the same name and weapon they would fight in a ring and the loser would have to change their name. Once of the characters was give a sword on the end of arm perhaps when they lost their hand? I think one guy fought with a rope which was unusual.

I read the book some time in the mid eighties

Thanks in advance for the help!


Erick Burnham | 3 comments I also remember that one of the men in the book would fight with every weapon so no one else could use his name.

ambyr | 30 comments You're looking for Piers Anthony's Battle Circle series. Titles are Sos the Rope, Var the Stick, and Neq the Sword.

(and how I figured that out when I've never so much as read the back cover of the books, I have no idea.)


Erick Burnham | 3 comments That's it, thanks!
